I posted here about the government’s plan to discontinue the 133-year-old Statistical Abstract, an invaluable tool for individuals and businesses alike. Regardless one’s political or economic stripes — Dem or Repub, Keynes or Hayek — there’s consensus about the importance and value of the Statistical Abstract.
So, I ask the TBP readership to let their collective voice be heard by writing to the director of the Census Bureau, one Robert M. Groves (Robert.M.Groves(AT)census.gov). Be respectful and don’t be a potty-mouth.
And if you’ve got an extra five minutes to kill, let your congress person know that you’d like the Abstract to be saved, apparently the budget that kills it has not yet been passed.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
